Why she said the things she said I haven't a clue.

And neither does NANCY DREW.

JAMES CAAN

I thought he was great in THIEF with Tuesday Weld and FOR THE BOYS with Bette Midler, but I have to say I liked him best in ELF! :D

Ah, boy did I want to slap Ms Granville's character in THESE THREE! She was also good in NOW, VOYAGER and HITLER'S CHILDREN.

The films of Pat O'Brien I enjoy most seem to be the ones in which his co-star is another man!He played great opposite James Cagney and Dick Powell in all their films together. I also liked him with Humphrey Bogart in SAN QUENTIN,  HAVING WONDERFUL CRIME with George Murphy and Carol Landis, and THE FRONT PAGE with Adolfe Menjou. Later on he was good as the police detective determined to catch gangster George Raft in SOME LIKE IT HOT.

Yes, Pat O'Brien had chemistry with everyone...especially with Cagney.

Thanks for highlighting these (in many cases) lesser acknowledged actors and actresses!
